Nineteen years of marriage, impressive! Time flies when you’re building a life together. You’re about to hit the two-decade mark, and that’s usually celebrated with bronze.

Fun ways to Celebrate

Fun ways to celebrate your 19th anniversary year

At home idea:

You can create a heartfelt ambiance on this special day without leaving your house! Set up pretty lanterns in your backyard and add cozy furniture with bronze-hued candles that give off a soft glow. Dance under the stars to your favorite love songs and cap off the night with dessert and champagne on your patio.

If you prefer an indoor celebration, you can prepare a four-course dinner to match your wedding reception. Decorate bronze charger plates with roses, use your sparkling drinkware, and bring out your cherished bridal china. Put out your framed invitation as the centerpiece and wear matching robes while you reminisce about all of the fun memories from your wedding day!

On a budget idea:

You can have a small get-together to celebrate your 19th wedding anniversary. Bring out your wedding album and those cherished ceremony photos for guests to enjoy. As they admire the pictures, serve up some homemade appetizers on your reception dinnerware. 

Throw in a surprise for your spouse with a playlist of your special songs. You’ll be slow-dancing and laughing just like you did when you were newlyweds. Finish off the night snuggled up by the fire pit, savoring a slice of cheesecake from your wedding bakery. 

You can also have a retro celebration in your basement with thrift store items, classic games, and furniture from your first apartment. Watch TV shows that remind you of your early married days and sip aquamarine cocktails while reminiscing about the beautiful life you’ve built together.

An adventurous idea:

Go-kart racing

Trade in your big budget for a thrill-filled adventure that’ll take you back to the heart-racing excitement of young love! For example, you can go-karting at the amusement park you used to visit together and compete to see who is the winner. And when the race is over, raise a glass of bubbly and toast to the winner.

Next, it’s time to get a little dirty. Jump on an ATV and ride off-road, tearing across muddy terrain together. It’s a wild ride, but there’s no better way to bond. Then, clean up and head over to that cute hilltop bistro you found last summer. As the sun sets, sip on some fine spirits and soak in the view. Round off the day by dancing under the stars to the tunes of a live band, just like you did on your honeymoon road trip.

A luxury idea:

Sometimes, the biggest luxury is a simple escape from the daily grind of work, kids, and never-ending errands. For your 19th anniversary, reserve a night at a cozy hotel close by. Ask for some sparkling cider and chocolate-dipped berries in the room when you check-in. You can also bring something special from your wedding day to display. 

Once you’ve settled in, take pictures of the B&B to recall this special moment on your 20th anniversary next year. Then, slip into robes, pick a movie from their library, and snuggle up for an intimate movie night. 

The next morning, you can relish the joy of sleeping in and savoring a specialty breakfast in bed. You’ll check out feeling renewed after spending precious hours celebrating your lasting love.
